‘Is Mike Pence the One Who's Been Lying to Us All This Time?': Scarborough Eviscerates VP

Conservative MSNBC host Joe Scarborough suggested Vice President Mike Pence may be a corrupt liar during a discussion of the investigations surrounding the administration of President Donald Trump and its possible ties to Russia.


"The Southern District of New York is getting deep into this. We’re going to find out what Mike Pence knew and when Mike Pence knew it," Scarborough said.

“I mean, Mike Pence has been claiming that he was just out in the dark and that he was just this clueless, hapless Indiana Hoosier that Donald Trump and the rest of the White House said nothing to,” he added. “But you’ve just got to start asking yourself, if Mike Pence wants to kill an investigation that is pursuing how the Russians tried to undermine American democracy in 2016, my gosh, makes me sad to say this, Mike, but I guess we have to start asking the question why does Mike Pence want to kill this investigation? What did Mike Pence though about Gen. Flynn? Was he lied to or is Mike Pence the one who has been lying to us all this time?”
